A fine, early map of the territory shown in its largest extent, and one of the few maps to show this configuration. No counties are delineated with only a few settlements noted including Arkopolis, Hot Springs, and Pecan Point. Indian lands are shown including those belonging to the Choctaw, Osage, Cherokee, and Quawpaws along with several boundary lines. The map extends north to include portions of the state of Missouri and Missouri Territory. Lucas' General Atlas is known as one of the finest general atlases produced in the U.S. at the time, due to the high quality paper, superior engraving quality, and attractive coloring style. Engraved by B.T. Welch & Co.
